Zizia aptera, heartleaf meadow parsnip is a less commonly found version of golden Alexander, Zizia aurea. The lacy, flat-topped yellow flowers sit atop two-foot stems in mid-spring. It is distinguished from golden Alexanders by the heart-shaped, toothed basal leaves. This species is native to Illinois and much of central and northern North America, in meadows and rocky soils.
